Electrical & Energy

The targets of Astar regarding surface finishing, pigmentation, self–extinguishment, arc resistance, dielectric strength, etc., have led Astar at the front of the electrical end energy sectors, achieving homologations as prestigious as Underwriters Laboratories. This sector, which has firmly trusted in SMC and BMC materials, applies our products in the manufacture of electric cabinets, junction boxes, insulators, watertight lighting fittings, low and medium voltage applications, conductive & ATEX parts, etc. The main companies in the Electrical and Energy Sectors have been using Astar materials in their products for many years.

Benefits of SMC/BMC in Electrical & Energy applications:

  • Excellent electrical insulating properties or conductivity
  • Design freedom (complex geometries and integration not possible in other materials)
  • Flame retardant and low smoke systems compliant with the highest standards
  • Halogen-free formulations give extremely low smoke and low toxicity
  • Dimensional accuracy over a wide range of temperatures
  • Weight savings with excellent strength/stiffness
  • Self coloured and fully pigmentable to a wide range of colours
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Creep resistant
  • Weather and moisture resistant
  • Maintenance-free
